21 Years and Still a Christian!

Currently Reading: The Knowledge of the Holy; A.W. Tozer

Great book! I will post from it, but probably towards the end in more of a synopsis-kind-of-way. (Unlike what I did with Screwtape Letters.)

Today is my 21st birthday! Wow. I like birthdays. You always end up introspective, which can be good. I always end up encouraged – people really do like me! (Lol, I know, but hey we all want to be liked. Don’t lie.) And I always end up excited.

This birthday is a different one for me. I feel like it is a New Year. I am making resolutions of sort. Not resolutions so much, as serious inventory of my life. I am throwing out some things that didn’t work and aren’t me and embracing again, or for the first time, things that will work and things that make up who I am.

I am not the person I always thought I was. For example, I am not as much of a people-person as I thought I was. I like to be quiet and alone with a book or a computer. I don’t know if this means that I am running from people and thus problems (internal) or if this is really who I am. You know what? This is who I am. I don’t need to lie and push myself to be something that I thought I wanted to be or something that I thought people wanted me to be. I just need to be me and have fun. I like people, but I really like books too.

Also, I have a new-found appreciation for the Bible. I know that sounds weird but I do. That Jesus guy really knew what He was talking about! He really did give us “all things that pertain to life and godliness.” (2 Peter 1:3)

“Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited us to God. The best invitation we ever received!” (2 Peter 1:3 The Message) (Think about this verse, I mean really think about it. Selah!)

Well, I am discovering more and more about God and about myself. I am just going to keep pushing towards God and living my life. I am going back to wearing polos and ball-caps and eating twizzlers and just being me! Hopefully, I can go back to being a good friend to people and just loving life. (I don’t think I am very far.) BUT on the other hand, let’s not live our lives looking backwards! No, let’s keep looking forward! Unto Jesus!

(I know this post was preachy, but hey it is Sunday!)

Not much on my mind right now, but it’s not important. I’ve just been letting everything happen without me. I just don’t have anything to say right now.
